Résumé
Fr. 34 B., that belongs to Varro’s Menippean satire Andabatae, presents important exegetical problems, because of its small dimensions and its obscure content. The mention of the divinities Zeus and Athena, as well as the mention of the mystagogi, ‘initiators’, allow us to refer the fragment to the religious sphere. This makes difficult to link fr. 34 B. with the other fragments, that generally seem to refer to the context of a philosophical debate between a Stoic and an Epicurean. However, it is possible to conciliate the text of fr. 34 B. with the wider context of the satire, if we read the passage as a part of the argument developed by the Epicurean philosopher against the Stoic belief in the divine providence.
